Abstract:

This simulation tested controllers ability to effectively resolve conflicts for the proposed triple simultaneous instrument landing system ILS approach operation at the new Denver International Airport DIA . Controllers used Final Monitor Aid FMA displays. The radar sensor simulated had the performance of an Airport Surveillance Radar ASR-9 system enhanced to provide improved target resolution capabilities. Aircraft blunders were used to test the controllers ability to maintain a distance of 500 ft between aircraft during critical situations. Four criteria were developed by the Multiple Parallel Approach Program MPAP Technical Work Group TWG to evaluate the study 1 the number of Test Criterion Violations TCVs relative to the total number of at risk blunders 2 the frequency of nuisance breakouts NBOs and No Transgression Zone NTZ entries 3 the operational assessments from participating controllers, technical observers, and MPAP TWG members and 4 a risk analysis relative to one fatal accident per 25,000,000 approaches. The MPAP TWG, technical observers, and participating controllers agreed that the triple simultaneous ILS approach operation at DIA was acceptable, as simulated.
